Team BRIT’s success driven by the power of hidden disabilities

At Brit we want our people to feel confident bringing their whole self to work. During the last 12 months the Brit People Forum has initiated a number of employee resource groups to support that aim and we are delighted to launch the hidden and visible disabilities group.

As part of that launch, and in celebration of our continued partnership with disabled motor sports team, Team BRIT, we asked driver Bobby Trundley to tell us how racing has helped him cope with his hidden disability, Autism.

In this video he describes Autism as his superpower and how overcoming his challenges, uncovered his exceptional talent and passion for racing driving.
